A New simple approach to detect, classify shot boundaries and store shot boundary frames in Video sequence using human skin region detection based approach is proposed. Human skin region detection is the process of detecting skin region in sequence of frames. Skin region detection is mainly used for the identification of the human face detection. This approach is very much suitable for finding shots in TV News so that we can classify anchor and non anchor frames to save the overall time which is required to watch overall news,
